Real Estate Survey Index At Its Nine-Year Peak

According to a survey taken in January 2016 by GKI Economic Research Company, both Hungarian and Budapest real estate market indices were up by 3 points this quarter, representing a 35-quarter peak: 2007 was the last time the index was this high. 

The survey has been conducted to assess intentions and prospects of companiess working in real estate related fields, including developers, consultants, agencies, and operators. From this year on, a household sample was included in the survey, with a representative sample of a 1,000 people, expressing their plans on home buying and renovation or modernization works.

Current prospects reflect an overall  and growing optimism in all segments of the real estate market.

On the residential market, effects of the home purchase assistance scheme (CSOK) are obvious: expectations of households concerning buying homes has greatly improved.  Number of households who said they are definitely intending to buy or build homes rose by a stunning 41%.

The government’s housing policy measures have raised a lot of public interest and created a “CSOK fever”.

The majority of respondents operating in the real estate field expect further price inreases in the next 12 months: for second-hand homes, the expecred increase is 6%, while newly built homes the prognosis is a bit higher: a 7-8% increase.

All in all, it seems that the Budapest market will be the biggest winner of the government’s new housing policy measures.
